For My Fellow Chicago WG's

First of all, I just have to say I loathe, loathe, hate, hate RCN!!!!!!!!!!!! I still don't have cable. I still don't have Internet. And now they are sending me bills for $600+ because I haven't sent in my old cable box.

Hence no post yesterday. My apologies chicas.

I'm going to keep this post short and sweet, but my friend Pam just turned me onto this website called Poor Little Rich Girls. And when I saw they posted the words "free" and "Berry Chill" together, they had me hooked.

Essentially, the site caters to the "young woman living in the city earning enough money to support herself, but not quite enough to go spending it on every Jimmy, Marc and Saint Laurent she sees." And as such, they offer discounts and coupons on a ton of different things. My personal favorites so far - one hour free with a personal assistant from Chicago Anytime Assistants, 20% off your bill at Hunt Club, and duh this Berry Chill thing is making me salivate.

And not only do they offer discounts for us hard-working women, but they also have profiles on Chicago working women, find us awesome/healthy deals for lunch around town, and keep us dressed like superstars (without hurting our wallets).

Unfortunately, it looks like they only have a Chicago edition, but I'm hoping they take this national, because it's an awesome tool for us working women on a budget.

To say I'm smitten would be an understatement.

What a great site! I wish it wasn't only for Chicago!

RCN will refund it fully (unless there are late fees or something) when you return it; it's just a pain to get to the RCN place in Chicago.

The same thing happened to me with my cable.

Another great discount website for young people is Groupon. (http://groupon.thepoint.com/#city_selector) I believe they have deals for people in Chicago, Boston, DC, San Francisco, and New York (just launched this week!)

Awesome site! If Austin had something like that, it would be fabulous!

OMG I don't hate RCN with that much of the passion but they are difficult. WHAT is up with your cable? I also went to Berry Chill today (with half of my office) to get the free yogurt. NUM.

Sounds like an awesome thing! Hope the cable gets fixed, that is just crazy!

Great tip!
I am actually considering a move from NYC to Chicago. Would you be able to tell me how the job market is there? It seems as if you're really enjoying living in Chicago now and miss just a few things about NYC. I'm finding there to be WAY too many people in NYC and way too few jobs. Plus, I hear the dating life is better and guys are nicer in Chicago?!
Thanks for any input you can give.
Love your blog.

Stumbled upon your blog. The coupon website looks awesome. I was bummed to see they don't have one for NY. Anyway, just saying "hi"!
